I have a Dell XPS L702x Windows 7 professional 64bit os PC.
I updated the driver and software for my 6230N wireless adaptor many times from the Intel web site with no issues.
I tried updating my 64bit Pro set wireless software and diver for my centrino 6230N wireless adapter from software version 126.96.36.199 to version 16.7
The driver updated successfully to version: 188.8.131.52 and the ProSet wireless software installed successfully but the Pro-set wireless WIFI Connection Utility would not start and said that I needed to re-install the ProSet software. I tried repairing Pro-Set software install and the ProSet WiFI Connection utility and still did not work. The Pro-Set repair tool made matters worse and I actually received errors after using the Pro Set repair tool saying I was missing DLL's.
I had to do a system restore to go back to the old software.
I contacted Intel support and was told the 16.7 software should work for the 6230N adapter and was informed to totally uninstall the pro-set software and Blue tooth software and My Wifi Technology software and then do a install.
I removed the old software and drivers and the new drivers installed correctly but still had the same issue that the Pro-Set software would not start after the install.
Did anyone with a Windows 7 64bit software and 6230N adaptor get the 16.07 Proset software update to installed correctly or have issues like me?
Can Intel verify that this software really works for a Windows 7 64bit os 6230N adaptor?
I don't feel this 16.0\7 Pro-Set software is NOT just a issue with my PC and will not work for any Windows 7 64Bit os with the 6230N centrino adapter.
Actually, I do have the same wireless adapter, Intel® Proset version and operating system and the software works properly. Deleting some folders after uninstalling Intel® Proset software may help:
